CaroTrans sees 40pc ME volume growth.

CaroTrans, a leading non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) and ocean freight consolidator, and its Middle East alliance partner Consolidated Shipping Services have announced a successful first year marked by 40 per cent volume growth.

The partnership has expanded and strengthened CaroTrans' footprint in the Middle East to now include trade with Iraq, Pakistan, and Jordan, said the CSS Group, a full service logistics company and NVOCC headquartered in Dubai.

CaroTrans and CSS Group's scope of services include comprehensive full container load (FCL) and less than container load (LCL) services, breakbulk, out of gauge and ro-ro cargo handling to and from the North America, Middle East and Africa region.

CaroTrans said it offers weekly, direct consolidation services from multiple CFS (consolidation freight systems), 24 in total, offering secure, efficient transits throughout the US.

The cargo moves to the Middle East and Africa from the primary gateways of Los Angeles, Houston, Charleston and New York, it added.

Greg Howard, the Global CEO of CaroTrans said, "We are pleased our first year teaming up with The CSS Group delivered strong growth and market expansion."

CaroTrans, he stated, strategically partners with premiere, neutral NVOs, regional leaders with strong brand recognition to ensure its global freight forwarder customers receive exceptional service and support throughout the world.

"Now and looking forward, emerging markets are the long term drivers behind global trade growth. Developed countries, such as the US, will see import growth slow and export trade increase," he remarked.

"Saudi Arabia is projected to have import growth globally, over the next five years, at 6.4 per cent and the UAE at 5.5 per cent," he said, citing the 2012 HSBC Global Connections Report.

CSS chairman TS Kaladharan said by joining forces with CaroTrans, the Dbai group has created a winning team of like-minded professionals committed to industry-leading service, resources and support.

"We are gratified that this alliance brings together an experienced group of ocean freight professionals that provide superior service and logistics support for our customers," he added.- TradeArabia News Service
